    Pros

    Usually set schedule after training.
    -Great team and environment
    -Slightly higher starting pay
    -Mainly local customer basis; be friendly you will see them often!

    Cons

    Some stores are open 24 hours, so if graveyards are not for you find one that isn't
    -Time frame for tasks can be small

    Advice to Management

    Allocate better timing.
    Stores can afford more hours/people to finish load and task so hire them!

    Pros

    Good benefits. If you have a good manager, hours are very flexible. Employee Discounts.

    Cons

    Do not trust their employees. LP is always monitoring your every move. Too many restrictions on what you can or cannot do. Pay is very low for clerks.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be on a power trip. You are not considered as a higher being than your employees. Treat others with respect and you will be respected.


  9. I love the people I work with, I just think that upper-management can be a little unreasonable with their expectations.

    Pros

    The people I work with all get along really well and the front store is also very nice. 20% discount on non-CVS brand items and 30% off CVS brand items. My pharmacy manager was very understanding when it came to scheduling and if I ever dealt with customers who gave me trouble, the pharmacists always backed me up.

    Cons

    The area you work in will be a big factor of what your clientele is like. Since this is a job in retail, customers are not always the nicest and because you are dispensing medication, there can be some pretty mean customers out there.

    Advice to Management

    Cutting hours makes working in the pharmacy extremely stressful and expecting the myHeart paper work to always be filled out is not very useful in my opinion.
